Just a quickie post today, well as quick as I can, as I have been told by the doctor I saw this morning to stay off the PC and away from TV ( I don't care about not watching TV but I do care about having to stay off the PC!!!!) So I'm doing this blog post then will catch up on blogs another day. I actually feel as though she was taking the mickey but admittedly I did spend all afternoon on the PC on Saturday when I was feeling a bit better only to start feeling worse in the evening so maybe there's something in it! I thought I might have an ear infection but she couldn't see anything but she did say I could have a build up of fluid in my inner ear which she wouldn't be able to see. Thankfully I do know that there are no tumours,blockages or bleeds etc as the head and neck CT I had back in January was clear. Of course now I'm worrying as my pulse rate was up so she was concerned about that but I always get that when I got to the doctors but she made me hold my hands out and I was shaking ( which I do when I'm nervous or hungry) so that made her even more concerned! I think I should have just not bothered going! It's always the same as well, the doctor I wanted to see, the best one there in my opinion, was fully booked! Anyway enough of that or I won't get this post done before Jess drags me off here kicking and screaming! She's given me until lunch time then that's my PC for today done!!!! Lol!
So without further ado I heard from Karan that she had opened my wee birthday gift to her:) After seeing Chris' thread holder I decided to give one a go. I'd been thinking about for ages and seeing hers just spurred me on. It's by no means perfect but I am rather pleased with it. I chose to stitch Casa Mia Stitching Angel in a DMC Variations thread ( red as you can see!). Karan loves it :)
I didn't get much done on Shores this weekend. Friday evening was the start of the annual carnival here so DH and I decided we'd go have a look and see what was happening. Jess and Abi had gone together then Abi was meeting up with some of her friends. Her evening did not go well and she ended up with us in tears. Anyway yes Shores! I did do a little bit before we went out then did a bit more on Saturday evening. I'm not sure what is wrong but I couldn't get the sea part to go right all the way across so I decided just to do a bit at a time. I am hoping that I haven't gone wrong on the two blocks above this one and not done enough stitches. Finger's firmly crossed.
I am almost there on stitching all the parts for Just A Thought Sampler Garden Casket. This is the needle cushion almost finished then I just have the custodian to do and I can start making it all up. I have loved stitching this.
Last night was my Sampler Girl Jane Austen night and I got quite a lot stitched on Return to the Sea.
When Chris visited last week she brought the Just Cross Stitch ornament preview issue to show me and, as it has some lovely ornaments in it and other things, I decided to go order it from where she gets her subscription, Magazine Cafe. I was happily looking forward to getting it but I ended up getting a refund from them as they did not have stock of that issue:( I was very disappointed and vented my disappointment on Facebook!!!! Ann ( no blog) kindly offered to pick me a copy up from her local newsagent and that has just arrived so I'll be popping a cheque in the post to her and relaxing with the mag this afternoon:) Thank you so much Ann :)
Right my times almost up so I'd better get off here before I get into bother from Jess!!!! Not that she'll notice as she's on the PS3 but if helps me to feel better then I'll behave!!!!
Take care everyone.
